Crowds gather at the Fasiladas' bath in Gondar, Ethiopia, to celebrate Timkat .
Timkat (Amharic "baptism") is the Ethiopian Orthodox celebration of Epiphany.
It is celebrated on January 19 (or 20 on Leap Year), corresponding to the 10th day of Terr following the Ethiopian calendar. Timket celebrates the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River.
This festival is best known for its ritual reenactment of baptism similar to such reenactments performed by numerous Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land when they visit the Jordan.
